Tea Tree Oil, derived from the leaves of the Melaleuca alternifolia plant found natively in Australia, has been used medicinally by ancient aboriginal tribes to treat cuts, grazes, and infections. In the 1920s, Arthur Penfold, a scientist from Sydney, extracted oil from the plant’s leaves and discovered its powerful antiseptic and anti-microbial properties. This discovery created a commercial harvest of the plant due to the growing demand for its oil.
Fun-Fact. Tea Tree Oil was even added to Australian soldiers’ military kits during World War II as a disinfectant for wounds.
We use a pure, steam-distilled, Tea Tree Oil that offers our shampoo several beneficial health properties to the scalp.
